5 Minutes with…Almira from Lumira Candles


We took 5 minutes to chat with the gorgeous Almira Armstrong who is the woman behind our newest luxury candle brand Lumira.

Placing the highest value on quality, design and craftsmanship Lumina’s mission is to provide a means to enhance our day-to-day lives with a sense of comfort, luxury and olfactory escapism, no matter the location or occasion. Infused with the subtle scent and soft glow of a Lumira candle any space can be transformed into an idyllic sanctuary because, obviously, everything is better by candlelight.
